The Allegheny County Parks Department is offering its annual Christmas Tree Recycling Program again this holiday season, a spokesperson said.
Residents may drop off Christmas trees from Dec. 26 through Jan. 14 at all nine county parks from 8 a.m. until dusk.
All lights, decorations, tinsel and stands must be removed from trees prior to drop-off. Trees will be mulched and used in the county parks. Drop-off locations include Alfalfa Shelter Parking Lot at Round Hill Park, Elizabeth Twp., and Chestnut Shelter Parking Lot, White Oak Park.
During the 2020-21 program, nearly 3,300 trees were received and recycled, with the resulting mulch used for various purposes throughout the park system’s 12,000 acres.
The list of drop-off locations is also available online at www.alleghenycounty.us/parks/christmas-tree-recycling-program.aspx.
